Socially distanced outdoor theatre, an original one-man adaptation of the classic H.G. Wells time travel tale by Don’t Go Into The Cellar

Join acclaimed actor Jonathan Goodwin in this original one-man adaptation of the classic H.G. Wells time travel tale. An authentic and faithful take on the source material, scripted by Jonathan Goodwin and co-directed by Goodwin and Gary Archer.

Brought to you by Don’t Go Into The Cellar! Victorian theatre with bite!

Tickets are £10 per person and limited to a max of 6 people from one household. If you are booking for more than 6 people or people from different households, please place two separate orders. The seating will be set out into socially distanced bubbles based on the orders which have been placed. The audience will not be permitted to move their seats during the performance to ensure distances are maintained.

The performance space and seating area is fully wheelchair accessible, but please email josie.wall@jqdt.org so we can ensure space is left for your wheelchair in your seating area. If you have any other access needs please let us know.

Hand sanitiser will be available on arrival. Plastic chairs will be used for seating and sanitised before the performance, but this is an outdoor setting without shelter. Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring your own blankets or cushions if you would like to be cosy! You are permitted to bring your own refreshments (please no alcohol) but please be aware that toilets are not available in the cemetery.

Warstone Lane Cemetery is in a very appropriate setting for this play, as it contains a memorial to William Edwards Hipkins who lost his life on the Titanic and is commemorated on his family grave. There will be a chance to view this memorial before and after the performance.
